Cars and gar­dens hit in van­dal spree

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

CARS were van­dalised dur­ing a spate of crim­i­nal dam­age in­ci­dents in the town.

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing dam­age to cars and in gar­dens over two nights at the week­end.

Car aeri­als were ripped off and tyres slashed dur­ing the in­ci­dents on Prest­bury Road, Bridge Street and New­ton Street overnight on Thurs­day, and an­other car was dam­aged overnight on Fri­day.

In to­tal five cars were af­fected and there were also gar­den or­na­ments dam­aged dur­ing the in­ci­dents.

The dam­age took place be­tween 6.30pm and 7am on both nights.

PC Craig Wil­liams, from Macclesfield Neigh­bour­hood Polic­ing Unit, said: “We’re in­ves­ti­gat­ing a spate of crim­i­nal dam­age and urge peo­ple to get in touch if they know any­thing.

“The roads where the in­ci­dents took place seem to in­di­cate a per­son’s route and we think it could be down to drunken be­hav­iour, but then it also hap­pened in the same lo­ca­tion the next night.

“The dam­age works out ex­pen­sive for car own­ers, par­tic­u­larly with tyres be­ing slashed so we want to find who’s re­spon­si­ble.”

Call po­lice on 101 with in­for­ma­tion.
